No doubt as happy as Larry after its second instalment last Easter, which brought a Dirtybird debut with Claude VonStroke to a 300-capacity room in Essex only to be one-in-one-out by 11pm (see video), Gist is to return for Jubilee weekend (Saturday 2nd June). This time with a takeover from another leader of the pack, Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom imprint.
Not only will it allow Chelmsford’s clued-up club cats a taste (the gist, even) of the headman’s debut LP, ‘Word Of Mouth’, but Tolfrey will be flanked by two of the finest names on the Leftroom roster, Laura Jones and Sam Russo. Securing arguably the most on-point deep house label doing the rounds today, Gist looks set to claim yet another major party scalp again this month, giving this small town, more used to binge drinking than decent dance beats, exactly what it needs in the process.
